Happy New Year

As another year goes by
I wonder just who's next to die
Each day I read of one more soul
Who joins this very morbid toll
So every day some wonder why
Death has come and passed us by
For rich or poor
Some lose the fight
Their days now dark
No longer bright
No need do they have now to work
Daily duties they can shirk
Yet other will begin to mourn
They feel the loss
Their lives are torn
For all those souls
Who've lost a mate
It's tough to smile
And hide your hate
For when as couples you had friends
Now all alone
Their friendship ends
The weekends come
Your pals don't call
Afraid that someday
They might fall
Some squirm and twitch
Then say hello
But don't stay long
Just have to go
So now you sit there all alone
Hoping that you'll hear the phone
Another year just hope and pray
That nothing new can spoil your day
You want the time to simply flow
No changes to the status quo
